Or- "I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it"
Ok, this is a hard one to explain. I can easily move to the beat of any song. I look and feel comfortable dancing. I can even Dougie. But for my entire life, I've been obssesed with dance movies, from Jailhouse Rock to West Side Story to Step Up 1,2, and 3 (Don't judge me!!). As a kid, and admittedly an adult, I'd put on MTV and BET and dance along with the videos. Hell, my younger sisters still do it too. And I think my love affair with all things dance and dance related needs to see the light of day. I already dance like nobody's watching. Now I need to learn how to dance like I have a clue about what I'm doing.
Now you may think my love of dance only extends to modern gyrations. And although I do love gettin' down, I think it's important that I learn the classics too. I want to salsa, merengue, waltz, swing, and cha cha with the best of them. Or at least the best at the beginner 101 classes that I intend to take. And yes, I intend to throw some hip hop, jazz, and maybe even some roller dance classes into the mix too.
First up, I'm going to test out a class based soley on moves inspired by the King of Pop. I mean, c'mon. If I can moonwalk, I can do ANYTHING, right?
So, (in my Jerry Maguire voice) Who's coming with me?!?!
